Description

A new bilingual opera by Evan Mack and Joshua McGuire
Based on the popular Mexican folk tale, Lucinda y las Flores de la Nochebuena tells the story of how the poinsettia became a meaningful flower of the holiday season. This new opera unfolds as young Lucinda and her mother make a blanket together to give as a Christmas gift, but Lucinda's mother grows very ill and they do not finish in time for the Christmas Even celebration. As Lucinda findst he strength to attend the celebration alone, with just wildflowers to share, a holiday miracle teachers her that giving from the heart is more important than the gift itself.
